Jul. 08, 2000: BUCKELEY'S Chardonnay South Australia 1999 (85 points, $10)

How about this smooth and generous Chardonnay at a grab-me price? It shows appealing flavors of spicy melon and pear, with a nice stroke of oak emerging strongly on the lingering finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 05, 2000: HOGUE Cabernet-Merlot Columbia Valley 1998 (86 points, $10)

On the light side, with a crisp texture up front that turns polished around the pretty strawberry, raspberry and vanilla flavors as they echo on the finish. A Washington offering, nicely done and affordably priced. Drink now through 2004. 51,448 cases mad —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 03, 2000: NOBILO Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest 1999 (87 points, $10)

This steely, racy Sauvignon Blanc scores points for New Zealand for both quality and price, emphasizing sleek mineral and apple flavors on a zingy frame, echoing fruit on the finish. Drink now. 40,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jun. 30, 2000: ROSEMOUNT Grenache-Shiraz South Eastern Australia 1999 (85 points, $8)

Down Under delivers with this fruity red at a no-quibble price. Focused and tasty, with lots of ripe raspberry flavors and toasty vanilla notes that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2002. 30,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jun. 29, 2000: PENFOLDS Shiraz-Cabernet South Australia Koonunga Hill 1999 (85 points, $11)

Firm and chewy, with a layer of surprisingly substantial tannins around a nice core of blackberry, currant and peppery flavors, this good value red from Australia's high-profile producer will be best after 2002. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 66,075 —Harvey Steiman
